New Delhi, Dec 12, 2016 : East Delhi Municipal Corporation has decided to implement a zerowaste management plan in Vasundhara Enclave and make it a model colony.

"The NGO has submitted an action plan and it has been approved. If our experiment in Vasundhara Enclave is successful, the plan will be replicated in Preet Vihar as well.

We will collect the segregated waste and take it to a material recovery facility," said east corporation commissioner Mohanjeet Singh.
